Cebu 2015 Day 1: Magellan's Cross and Basilica del Sto. Nino Cebu

The original cross which is encased in this cross was planted by Magellan in 1521 when a lot of Filipinos were baptized to Christianity.

The painting depicts the arrival of Magellan in Cebu and the planting of the original cross.
Up until this day, Magellan Cross remains to be one of the most famous tourists spots in the Queen City of the South.

There are women dresed in yellow who sold us candles. In return, she
 danced the sinulog dance (two steps forward, once step back) waving the candles while offering a song of prayer.
Walking distance from the Magellan's cross is Basilica del Santo Nino. This is the oldest Roman Catholic Church in the Philippines. It is now re-opened to the public but the damage caused by the 2013 earthquake is still evident.
